Nonsurgical fat reduction offered at VIP Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV is a great option for patients who are struggling with stubborn fat and cellulite, but do not wish to undergo the stress and risks of an invasive surgery like liposuction. Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, our board-certified plastic surgeon, offers two different systems that are both designed to safely and effectively eliminate fat cells in the abdomen, lower back, buttocks, and thigh areas for a slimmer, toned contour. The Liposonix and BodyFX technology uses concentrated bursts of either radio frequency or ultrasound energy to target fat and cellulite that are resistant to diet and exercise — all without the need for an extensive recovery period. After one or more quick sessions, patients have reported losing multiple inches and reducing their clothing size thanks to this body contouring technique.
The ideal candidates for nonsurgical fat reduction will have:
- Reached a healthy, stable weight
- Stubborn fat on their abdomen, flanks, lower back, thighs, or buttocks
- A desire for a noninvasive approach that tones the body
- Good skin elasticity and overall health
- Realistic expectations for their outcome
Types of Fat Reduction
VIP Plastic Surgery is proud to offer the two following options for nonsurgical fat reduction to our Las Vegas, NV patients:
The Liposonix system utilizes focused, high-intensity ultrasound energy to penetrate deeply beyond just the surface layer of the skin. This unique technology allows for greater depth to be reached when targeting and destroying the subcutaneous fat cells, as opposed to certain laser devices that are only able to affect the body's top layer. This treatment is ideal for large surface areas such as the abdomen and flanks. Many patients have reported after a single, one-hour session having lost one inch around their waist, which is typically equivalent to one pant size. Multiple sessions can be administered as well to maximize results. Noticeable results usually take around 8 – 12 weeks to appear.
This treatment combines both radio frequency energy and a negative energy massage (vacuum) to simultaneously heat the skin's deep tissues and suction the top layer for maximum fat cell destruction, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening. BodyFX is designed to treat the abdomen, flanks, buttocks, thighs, and any other area that may benefit. Typically, 6 – 12 treatments are recommended for achieving optimal results, though some improvement can be noticed after one session. Fat and cellulite reduction can be observed right away, but the skin tightening process will take a more gradual, slow approach, yielding peak results after around 6 – 12 months.
These treatments are not an alternative to weight loss and are used for body contouring purposes only.
"African American/ Ethnic Rhinoplasty - Dr. Khorsandi is awesome. He has a wonderful bedside manner. I felt very confident & comfortable with my choice. I knew that his number 1 priority was safety. He takes time to answer questions, and let you know what is and isn't possible."- N. / RealSelf / Nov 07, 2018
"Love everything about this place! The employees, the owner, the results! My wife has had lip fillers and has been beyond happy, we've both gotten Botox here and for the first time ever it's actually worked on me and stayed for a while! I've had FUE hair transplants and I'm currently 4 months post op and hair is coming in nicely! Can't wait for my 6 month mark to when I can see more or less full results!"- J.G. / Yelp / Oct 23, 2018
"So I am updating my review and I'm still giving everyone a 5+ star rating! I did the fraxel on Monday and it's Sunday evening and yes I am still pink but the results are amazing! My hyper pigmentation and most of my texture is gone! I also received a chin implant with Dr K on Wednesday so I'm still swollen with that but I know I'm going to love the result of that as well! Again I need to give a shout put to Mel for being a beast with a laser! She is my go to when it comes to my aesthetic needs and also Dr K for giving me confidence with my profile. I just wish the swelling would go down faster! lol damn lack of patience. Well I now have a laundry list of other things I would like to tweak. And I know VIP is the place I can trust and know I'll get the best work done!"- V.B. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2017
"Dr. K is the guy to go to for rhinoplasties! After two rhinoplasties that I was unhappy with, I decided to go to Dr.K for a revision and am more than satisfied. I was so afraid of my nose looking "nose-jobby" or too small... but Dr.K's work is natural. He's amazing!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Oct 11, 2018
"Awesome experience getting my breast and nose job done! I can't say enough great things about this practice and Dr. Khorsandi. He is honest and kind with great bedside manners. Something that stood out to me was the 3D imaging system. The 3D imaging system they have let me see what I would look like after the surgery, something I really liked and found helpful when deciding on this surgery. Before going here, I visited two other plastic surgeons in the area and they didn't have this technology. All they told me to do was put in an implant in a sports bra, which doesn't account for your current breast tissues. I got my procedures done 4 months ago and the results I see now are accurate to what the 3D imaging system showed. Overall a great doctor that I highly recommend!"- C.R. / Google / Oct 04, 2018
During each procedure, patients will be able to lie down and relax. Neither fat reduction option should be painful or uncomfortable, though patients can expect to feel a heating sensation underneath their skin due to the intense energy being emitted from the handpiece. These are short, outpatient treatments that will last around one hour depending on which area is being treated. If recommended, we will schedule additional sessions during the appointment.
Generally, anesthesia and numbing agents are not needed as these procedures should be comfortable. Once completed, patients can return home to their normal activities with no downtime. There may be some redness or slight bruising in the area after treatment, but these side effects should subside very quickly. Patients can expect their results to be long term, though a healthy diet and regular exercise are required to maintain fat loss and prevent weight gain from disrupting their outcome.
